We spent 3 fantastic nights in the Riad. This Riad was beautiful and only a short walk from the main square. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfasts were tasty and were different each day. There is a fantastic roof terrace with awesome views over the city. I would stay here again. Loved it.

This riad is fabulous. Two great roof terraces. We stayed here as a group of ten and really enjoyed it. Beds are very comfy and Abdul and yessi gave us fantastic service. The breakfast is so delicious and they served us whenever we got up regardless of the time. I would highly recommend it. Just a few minutes walk from... More

Booked this Riad through Trailfinders and wasn't disappointed. The Riad is located off the main road, opposite the Bab Doukkala mosque, down an alley way. Upon arriving, we were greeted by Badar, one of the Riad staff, and given tea and local home-made cookies. The Riad itself only has 6 rooms, so the service provided is quite friendly and personal....

Great place to base yourself in Marrakesh. Down a couple of narrow backstreets but a welcome that was second to none awaited us. The riad is laid out perfectly with a small plunge pool and dining area on the ground floor. Breakfast here in the morning is delightful. The four bedrooms on the 2nd floor are fantastic all with air... More

For our main stay in Marrakesh, we set up camp here. Even arriving quite late in the evening the Riad gave off a well presented and welcoming atmosphere. They were very helpful with information on how to get to transport hubs, attractions and things to avoid - albeit after they initially offered the overpriced tour. They were not pushy and... More

Situated deep in the narrow backstreets, this little oasis is tranquil and comfortable. The Riad has a small (very cold) plunge pool on the ground floor and a sun terrace on the roof top. The only sounds to penetrate the surroundings are the call to prayers from the many nearby mosques. The staff are very attentive, friendly and helpful with... More

The riad was exactly what we hoped for , we had a lovely immaculatly clean room and a unusual sunken bath in the bathroom. Our breakfast was fresh and plentiful , the staff were so friendly and nothing was a problem. , they... More

This riad is beautiful. The furnishings, facilities and general layout make it a peaceful and authentic place to stay. The riad is situated in a fantastic location, close to a number of Marrakesh's must-sees. Could not fault the staff - they were extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a happy and comfortable one. We... More
